Maybe there's a threshold for number of downloads.

But it doesnt seem logical that there's no link to simply add the content. I mean, so many people could be abusing that feature.

The docs say all you do is add freecache.org/ before your url, that's a simplicity that seems logical. And the project can't really be abused as its goal is to spread out bandwidth regardless of content. Indeed if you browse the status page you'll see what appears to be some pretty objectional content.

I think there's a lot of confusion on how Freecache works. Perhaps Ralf (the coder) could write up a mini-FAQ for us that we could put front and center on the Freecache page.

I've seen a lot of people using Freecache links on their sites, though, and I think some of them just end up getting all the traffic back to their own site, because Freecache will just pass straight through to your original URL if no other site ends up mirroring it - maybe because there aren't many Freecache mirrors and many are full? I'm somewhat confused.

I'll try to get Ralf to comment/reply to this thread for more clarification.

Thanks,
Simon.
